Custom Plates

My Mom loves this picture, so I thought I'd put it on my blog.
Jake ordered custom plates back in December for his Jeep.

Engagement Photos

Jake & I took a tripod & a camera to downtown Wilmington today.
We found some alleys & other areas to take pictures in. Jake did some editing on photo shop. We took over 150 shots! Maybe more will come as he has a chance to work on them.

Details of the Engagement

Everyone has been asking for details, so here they are.

Friday night Jake & I went downtown Wilmington to Elijah's for dinner. Elijah's is right on the river--very pretty & good food. Jake had said that we were going to go to the beach later that night. We walked around the boardwalk near Elijah's. After dinner we decided to go to Port City Java for coffee & then head out to the beach. While we were at the coffee shop Jake received a "call" from Coach Tucker (the Athletic Director at WCA). Coach Tucker "said" that the alarms had gone off at the gym & we needed to meet him over there to check it out. Here is what happened once we got to the school.

I really had no clue. I had thought that it would happen at the beach later that night. For anyone that doesn't know. . .I had a similar incident with the Plymouth, MN police in December of 2005. I was detained in the back of a cop car for an hour with handcuffs on. While all of this was happening on Friday night I was just thinking--I can't believe this is happening to me again. No clue that Jake was going to propose. A friend of Jake's, Ed McMahon, is Chief Deputy for New Hanover. He hooked Jake up. I am actually staying at Ed & Teena's while I am in Wilmington.


He got down on one knee & I said YES.

The wedding will be Saturday, July 26, 2008
in Minneapolis, MN.

Today is my Mom's birthday!

It is also my birthday. I absolutely love sharing a birthday with my Mom. It is really fun now that I am older & we can do something special together. I am sure when I was little Mom's birthday was overlooked since she was busy having a party for me. The purpose of this post is really to say how much I love my Mom & what an amazing person she is. She is such a great example of what a godly woman, wife & mother should look like.

Thanks Mom. I love you so much!

SH Winter Weekend

This past weekend I had the opportunity to counsel out at SH Winter Weekend at Camp Clearwaters. We really had a great group of kids & a wonderful time. Ben Straub spoke on true wisdom (as described throughout Proverbs) & really challenged us. The whole group went tubing at Wild Mountain on Saturday afternoon thru evening. The kids also made videos for YouTube. That was hilarious! We leaders made one too. Such a fun weekend, but maybe I am getting too old to sleep on the floor & stay up super late with crazy teens. ;) Just kidding . . . I'd sign up to do it again in a heartbeat.
